Metal Female Voices Fest IX

Oktoberhallen Wieze (Belgium)

(Pentax k-x with Tamron SP AF 17-50mm 2.8 XR Di II LD Asp IF and Sigma AF 50-150mm 2.8 EX DC APO HSM II)

After Hanging Doll had left the stage it was continued British. With the band Nemhain more rocky sounds entered the venue and could cause first movements of the crowd.
Front woman Amber Erlandsson impressed not only by her look but also with forceful somehow lower voice during powerful songs bringing the hands of the first rows up into the air. Vocally during several tracks supported vocally by her bassist Lisa Dickinson additionally the other band members were heavily swirling across the stage. To the end of the gig there was one of the few pyro effects of the festival. Singer Amber came onto the stage having two torches in her hand which she simply inflamed and showed that she could not only play with fire on her skin but is also capable of breathing massive fireballs into the air.
Already a way better gig compared to the first one (and that not only because of the "hot" ending) that really made you want more. Unfortunately it was a bit shord but the British only had one album yet released so that there was not much more material available.
